As children grow in this world, we need to provide them with tools and methods to ensure that they are the best human beings that they can be. The way we deal with our children's difficult behaviour can speed up their ability to develop flexibility as well as patience. Talk Less, Listen More provides parents with strategies and ideas on how to ensure children take responsibility for their actions and are able to determine what is appropriate behaviour. This book gives you behavioural management skills that will not only help deal with your child?s current issues, but also develop important life skills.
Michael Hawton provides examples, illustrations, maps diagrams and practical information for parents to help them through this sometimes turbulent time. Throughout the book, and through the learning of these new strategies, parents will work out what to do in the most difficult moments and to stop these times morphing into train wrecks. Written in simply everyday language, using simple strategies, the end result will be that children will be able to assume better self-control of their actions, and be able to monitor their behavior in any given situations.
Suitable for today's modern family, you will learn to parent your children more gracefully with basic and simple strategies. That will in turn, will reduce stress levels and increase the level of harmony in your family life
